Merry Christmas Everyone!
Thank you so much for all the emails, comments and messages. We really appreciate hearing from all of you especially at this time of year. Getting Internet has been more difficult than expected. We frequently are able to get email but thats about it. So we are able to read comments etc but have difficulty answering.
We have been having a very wonderful time in the Exumas. The weather has been perfect and the company even better.
It was a nice xmas. Different, even strange, if Jasper hadn't joined us it wouldn't have felt like christmas at all. I think its mainly the climate. Not what we are used to. Santa did find his way to the boat as did our Elf. Eva was very excited christmas morning, we opened present outside in the cockpit had cooffee and a nice breakfast. The boats in the anchorage at Normans all converged on a beach for christmas potluck dinner. It was delicious!! all kinds of dishes and lots of kids running around.
Jasper's visit was very fun. After picking him up at Normans and we did lots fishing, hunting and conching. We even made it down to Hawksbill cay for some drift snorkeling. Very cool! you drift with a strong out going tide through the cut in the islands. The depth varies from a few feet to maybe 30 or so feet. Kind of spooky lighting and always a chance of meeting large predators swimming in the current. The best we could do was some big Barracuda.
All to soon is was time to take Jas back to Nassau for his flight home. Not before a short stop at Allans to see the lizards and then across the Bahama Bank to Coral harbor. Jasper made his flightand we will miss him. It was a great visit. We have picked up new crew, Monika and Braydon. In the morning we head south
Happy New Year !!!
